Gemini/Gemini Rising* (May 21-Jun 20): Your journalistic self would ask, "Where do broken hearts go?" Or where they at? Behind the preposition is what I'd tell you. You tend toward mental pursuits; therefore, you'd intellectualize the feeling aspect of a heart wounded or broken. Can they find their way home? It is an obsession on what is missing from the relationships. Finding your way home through being a couple means you focus on what's there. Leave the complaining, nagging and whining at the door. These energies seem like a hammer at the heart of your loved one. Your ruler, Mercury, moves through mixed feelings and emotionally duplicitous Pisces. You can easily fall prey to rewriting your past connections, making them seem better than they were. In and of itself, this can be virtually harmless; it is when you go to the other mental extreme and place blame for your runaway broken heart squarely at your past lover's feet. Please accept some of the responsibility for the relationship not going well. The same can occur in seemingly harmless disagreements. Continued in the sign of the home Cancer ...
Cancer/Cancer Rising* (Jun 21-July 21): Begun in mentally realistic Gemini, your next-door neighbor who likes to pretend to easily get beyond feelings. You give them a home in which to roost. Once the Twins (at least one of them) admit to the fun they have exploring their feelings (at least the communication of them), then they can learn from you and Ms. Houston's upbeat tune "So Emotional": I don't know why I like it/I just do/I remember the way we touch/I just wish I didn't like so much/I get so emotional, baby/Every time I think of you/I get so emotional/Ain't it shocking what love can do? Gifted (or cursed, depending on circumstance and perspective) with a deep capacity for intimacy, you can amp up the volume, interpersonally speaking to such a point of everyone drowning. Some would call this brand of connecting "smothery love." That's why it is helpful to keep the air signs of Gemini, Libra and Aquarius around to help you objectively analyze what kinds of touches you like so much. It is important for you to know how love shocks your ego defenses, breaking them down in order to be emotional, and loved better.
Leo/Leo Rising* (July 22-Aug 22): "Sing the song, Mommy," says Bobbi Kristina at the beginning of "My Love Is Your Love." A smooth reggae tune that includes the chorus It would take an eternity to break us/And the chains of Amistad couldn't hold us. Oh, snap, a bit of ancestral wisdom in the song! La Amistad (Spanish for "friendship") was a ship on which the African slaves mutinied but were captured near Long Island. Your sign symbolizes (and Whitney was born August 9, 1963) a willful application of your heart opening love to your children, a mate, friendship and higher (noble) principles of living. It would appear that Ms. Houston had it all (although it is rumored that she has debt to her record company). It is important to realize that maybe she didn't receive the love she so desperately desired. She is more than a cautionary tale to all Leos who may demand to be given, or who exact a return on what has been given, instead of just singing the song from your truly open hearts. Your other song - yes, this Leo female would want two songs - is "Love Will Save the Day." Ustedes y Amistad (You and friendship) will do just that. Love will always play the greater part/When your battles wear you down ... Please rest your tortured soul.
